The MIUI 12.5 that carries a slew of improvements over the existing MIUI 12 and was first unveiled in China last year.

The company has also been teasing the launch of MIUI 12.5 for global markets over the last few days through multiple social media posts. Although the latest poster does not highlight its features, the company had showcased its key details during the launch event in China last month. The MIUI 12.5 comes with improved aesthetics and visual design that is said to be more efficient than the previous iterations. It carries ‘Super Wallpaper’ that consumes 40 percent less battery and can also change the mood to match the time of the day.
